tartofmidlothian on Jambos Kickback: " Airdrie worked hard, closed down well and had a wee bit of threat, but we were everything we've been waiting for. Hard work, crisp passing, pressed well and always looking for the goal."

LeftBack: "Genuinely not trying to bring mood down after a wonderful result and performance. But it does highlight how terrible we have been for a long time and questions must be asked as to how much progress has been lost with certain people at helm."

Last Laff: "A lot of confidence can be taken from today. I thought it was a very accomplished performance and a good platform to build on with hopefully another couple of additions to the Kosovo lad."

There was some love for Sean Clare ...

Aquapam on Twitter: "Well done Hearts. Only Airdrie and we're nowhere near the finished article but much improved and there's no signs of Levein left in a performance like today. Particularly pleased for Sean Clare who's had a new lease of life since Levein left. Delighted for him."

Gareth Kirkwood: "Sean Clare is like a new player under Stendel. Amazing what actually being coached can do."

Ali Wightman: "Enjoying the new Sean Clare - a lot!"

Euan Henderson was also singled out for his display ...

E6 Inc: "Showed some great little touches too. Well done that lad. Deserves to keep his place on Wednesday."

Alphonse Capone: "Few folk questioning him starting but he's earned it recently and proved why today."
